antivirus in smtp, good or bad?
Hi, When investigating our mail queue it seems we have quite a lot of mails which are stuck in transit... Whats happening is we're accepting the mail as the primary MX for the domain but the user has setup a forwarding to another account at another ISP, they have antivirus service on that other account. So we get the mail, spool it and try to forward it but then we get a "550 Error: Suspected W32/[email protected] virus" after DATA and our server freezes the mail. Surely this is an incorrect way to do this as there will be lots of similar MXs like ours backing this mail up? They should accept the mail and then bounce it? Thoughts? Steve
